Wow, now imagine this having been released right after that infamous "Nintendon't" ad campaign :)
Both Nintendo and Sega would try to sue the unlicenced developer and unlicenced publisher.

Amazing work with the sound effects, some slowdowns when there is much happening but this is still blowing my mind!

I had to do it

nice cover! :lol: and great demo TiagoSC

I've tested in bsnes and got some slowdowns but then I've tested on real hardware (this version works flawless) and it was much better than on the emulator.

So I know I probably shouldn't be using the emulator I used in the first place, but: I tried playing your demo with ZSNES, and in addition to this game crash due to the 1UP sound that Strat also reported:

On Geiger SNES9x 1.43 the 1-up sound crashes here.
...I also noticed, at least with ZSNES, how the SPC700 channels keep getting cut off when trying to normally play the music unless you have the other sound effects playing and overlapping with said channels. I'm not sure how fixable this would be for use with "poor" emulators like this (I used ZSNES because I doubt the computer I currently have could handle stuff like bsnes), but it was something I immediately noticed regardless.

UPDATE: I tried Snes9x 1.60 (64-bit) and it worked much better (in terms of accuracy; on my current computer it seemed to have frame drop issues and the button presses weren't as responsive as I'd like compared to ZSNES). The 1UP jingle doesn't crash the game, but it does play a bit faster than usual and I don't know if that was intentional or not.

Of course if the game works correctly on hardware any odd behavior on an emulator is the emulator's problem, so at least we can let people know that's the issue if it comes up.
